Though photographer Victor Skrebneski’s poster images for the Chicago International Film Festival have sometimes been saucy, this year’s model is rated G.

Two fresh-faced kids in festival T-shirts star in the poster, called “The Next Generation.” The forward-looking approach is in keeping with this year’s celebration of the fest’s 50th anniversary.

The poster was unveiled Wednesday night Expo 72, 72 E. Randolph, a gallery that is hosting an exhibition of film festival posters and videos through Oct. 30.

The festival runs Oct. 9-23.
